yellow line! len: left it up and soriano hit his 32nd of the year and the cubs are on the board. career number 372. bob: loud and long. absolutely crushed. got just as good a look at that. this one just above the 413 mark just left of straightaway center and well gone. len: the pitching coach just made a visit.
len: i know we probably make too big a deal out of pitch counts. 125 is not the end of the world, but you know gibson is hanging on every pitch at this point because his starter, through a full season is one out away from 200 innings. it's his final start of the year. off the end of the bat and it will be caught and that will end the game as trevor cahill with his third career complete game. will finish with 200 innings and the diamondbacks beat the cubs again. final tonight 8-2. >> coming up on wgn news an innocent victim to deadly gunfire is laid to rest. we'll take you to the funeral
